absolutely hammered by superstorm sandy and then the nor'easter that added insult to injury. and now the tables are turning as the west coast is going to be bracing for a monster weather pattern that has several states locked on to it's radar for a five-day assault. chad myers is watching the rain, wind, and the snow that is coming. they are really going to get it. how bad is it expected to be? >> there could be 20 inches of rain in spots. you put that up in the mountains and you're talking ten feet of snow and all of a sudden you have mudslides, snow slides, avalanches. it could be an ugly mess. you say a couple of days. i see four separate storms over the next 16 days hitting the same period. one storm out in the pacific, headed through san francisco and up to truckee. you don't go anywhere without the chains in your car. they are going to be chaining everything up and down there through the i-80 pass. there's the flood threat in the green because it's not going to be snowing there. there could be a foot of rain before it finally stops. we are seeing all of this purple area. that's
. one in particular that i should note is that the devastating impact of hurricane sandy is still being felt by families all across new york, new jersey, parts of connecticut. we are very pleased that under the leadership initially of janet napolitano and fema, but now, sean donovan heading up a task force we're focusing not only on recovery but now on rebuilding and making sure those communities come back stronger than ever and people get the help they need. so that will be an important topic because it's really going to be of interagency concern. second thing that we'll be talking about, obviously, when's on the minds of a lot of american families across the country and that's making sure that we get this fiscal cliff dealt with and that middle class taxes don't go up. i already spoke extensively about that today. i'll just repeat. there's no reason why taxes on middle class families should go up. it would be bad for the economy and those families. in fact, it would be bad for the world economy. and so, i think it's very important that we get that resolved and i am very open to a fair
in that cabinet meeting. he says they're going to talk about hurricane sandy, the fiscal cliff, some national security issues. but to your question, we already know that secretary of state clinton plans to depart treasury secretary geithner and even defense secretary leon panetta has made it clear he would like to leave within the year. the current white house chief of staff still considered the odds on favorite to get the nod to become the next treasury secretary from the president. it's believed he has the greatest chance here it's believed of getting senate confirmation. that leaves open the job of white house chief of staff. and i'm hearing that among the names that are being considered for that role are ron clay, the man once biden's chief of staff and did himself i'm told a great service in president obama's debate prep despite that bad first debate the president takes responsibility for it, does not blame mr. clain. and another name i've heard floated is dennis mcdunna. earned the great respect and admiration of the president. a young man not often considered in that light but the pres

. in the wake of hurricane sandy, governor chris christie of new asked for help with gas pipeline crews. there are people from specter energy here today. specter has crews in ontario that were ready to go. there was some pickup in some pipeline. i get an urgent call from our board members. he said -- this is crazy. we got into it. several people worked on it. they found out -- we could not -- it got resolved. the crews helped the electricity workers. we got to this crisis. it underscores the importance of the on the border work. now that we have got the u.s. elections behind us, is there a moment to build an amendment on it now? why is it so important to you? >> it is of immense benefit to both sides. we remain each other's largest trading partners. we are the two most integrated economies in the world. to have businesses constantly coming up against silly differences or the tyranny of small differences makes no sense. we have been making good progress since we agreed to this one year ago. it has been moving ahead well. it will pick up some steam now that the election is over. i hope th
to survive hurricane sandy and was picked out in new jersey and had to tie it up quickly right before the storm hit to protect it from the storm because they didn't want to have to pick out a new tree. it survived, of course, sitting here and it'll be later on this evening. we had a messy day yesterday. wasn't pretty, the airports had problems too. now as we go throughout the day it's cold in the wake of the norm. for the tree lighting it will be chilly. windchill, 32 and we will see the temperature itself somewhere right around 39. as far as the roads go after that little snow and rain yesterday, secondary roads could have a minor issue but later no problems at the airports. no travel issues whatsoever, we'll see highs in the 40s all through the northeast. rest of the country looks chilly. windchills cool seeing them around the rest of the nation especially in the midwest in the teens. even texas a little cold but the big weather story over the next three days if you are traveling to the west coast, you're not going to see typical west coast weather. it is going to be very cold over
. if we didn't get the message after sandy that our infrastructure is part of national security when you saw how the power outage -- we lost power on our farm for almost two weeks. those things go right to the heart of what keeps this country strong. we need to be competitive and all those feed into national security. so it makes it even more important that our representatives here in washington actually step up and say we have our important things that we believe in very deeply and we're not going to give up on the very basics but we understand we have a bigger job and that's to ensure that the united states is on a good, strong fiscal path because that affecting everything. >> i'm not feeling super hopeful about that. i'm not a cynical person but you have the tax thing and the entitlement/spending thing. and as much as people seem to be talking about working together, ultimately they seem to, maybe even especially on the entitlements thing, they don't want to put something on the table. they don't really want to give. how do you envision the solving of this issue? >> we've done it in t
